The Romantics included ruins in their work as a representation of the transience of earthly things. This image of a power station shrouded and disappearing in a dark and sinister mist, is also symbolic of our mortality.

The subject matter of my work is the landscape that I encounter and the emotional response that it generates.  Time and place are not important to me but I hope to create a sense of nostalgia and memory revisited.


I studied Printmaking at the Cambridge School of Art and specialised in etching for my MA.

I have been collaborating with Janet French on the Tree Portrait project which continues to grow and at the same time I have continued with my own work.

Much time is also taken up with demonstrating, teaching and residencies.  I did a residency  at Cill Railaig in Ireland, have demonstrated at Art in Action in Oxford and I teach an annual course at Gainsborough's House.  I took part in the BBC documentary about the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and also talked about printmaking on BBC radio Suffolk.
